WUHAN -- Fan Yifei, a former vice governor of the People's Bank of China, was tried on Thursday at a court in Huanggang, Central China's Hubei province, on charges of taking bribes worth over 386 million yuan (about $54.35 million).

In his final statement, Fan pleaded guilty and expressed remorse.

The trial was attended by more than 40 people, including lawmakers, political advisors, and members of the public.

The verdict will be announced in due course.
